    • An ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures.
    • It comprises of four components:
      • Awareness of one's own cultural worldview,
      • Attitude towards cultural differences,
      • Knowledge of different cultural practices and worldviews, and,
      • cross-cultural skills.
    • Developing cultural competence results in an ability to understand, communicate with, and effectively interact with people across cultures.
    • To deliver culturally appropriate and specifically tailored care to patients with diverse values, beliefs, and behaviors.

    Cultural Competency and the Joint Commission Standards
